Titan Comics will mark 100th birthday of Mike Hammer creator Mickey Spillane with a four-issue miniseries. The first issue, which will be released by Titan’s Hard Case Crime imprint, will hit stands in June.

Mickey Spillanes’s Mike Hammer is based on “The Night I Died,” an unproduced screenplay by Spillane. The screenplay will be adapted by Max Allan Collins (Road to Perdition), who’s no stranger to potboilers, having taken on the Mike Hammer novel franchise and in 2008 and previously writing comics for Hard Case Crime (see “Titan And Hard Case Crime Add New Potboilers”). Artist Marcelo Salaza and colorist Marcio Friere will illustrate the series. The first issue sports a cover by Rober McGinnis and variants by Alex Ronald and Mack Chater.
